Laughter is much more important than applause. Applause is almost a duty. Laughter is a reward.

— Carol Channing

The most satisfaction Carol Channing quotes to get the best of your day

When you try to talk about yourself, you dont know who you are, or what your like, or what your like to other people. And the moment you do it's a formula for yourself, and then you're imitating yourself, and then nobody likes you and they dont know why.


Onstage, you just have to tell the absolute truth about the character you are playing. You hope you communicate it, and you hope it comes back like a tennis ball. If you're listening to the sound of your own voice, nobody else is. The audience knows, and they freeze on you.


You know, if you're lucky enough to have two smash hit shows, the traffic of the world goes through your dressing room.


I'm allergic to chemicals in food so I eat only organic foods.


There's nothing like Nashville for making records.


I am terribly shy, but of course no one believes me. Come to think of it, neither would I.


If I talk about something I either talk about it or I DO it.

.. the minute I talk about it it's lost all it's drive and all it's fun.
